COMMUNION TO HOMEBOUND
Do you have family, neighbors or friends who are unable to attend mass? If you would like to take communion to them in their homes, call the Parish Center or see a Sacristan before mass. If you do not have a pyx one will be provided.
THANK YOU to the 59 parishioners who attended our Public Mass Sat Dec 12th. This includes the family and friends of Eli Elliot who was baptized at that mass. As we continue to film that mass for those who wish to attend the Sunday Mass online, we thank our celebrant Fr. Adrian who offers mass for us and through the words of his homily gives us strength & hope as we live through these trying days. To John who assists where needed and makes sure everyone & everything is where it needs to be. To our Pianist Jill and our Cantor Kathy. To Anthony and Jeanne who presented the readings and to Eucharistic Ministers Becky & Janelle. Thank you to our ushers Doris, Greg, & James. We are all especially grateful to Alan!! He came forward last March and offered to film all our services. He then edits the production and puts it out on the web for all to view! He makes it possible for us to come together and worship as a parish, during an exceedingly difficult time. If you were not able to join the service as it happened, you can watch the mass on the st-matts.org. Website/Facebook page or on YouTube.
THANK YOU to MSR DESIGN AECHITECTS (Paul Mellblom, principal) for providing an architectural drawing of the proposed restroom in the lower level of the church bldg. This will allow us to secure a permit from the City of St. Paul. We were referred to this firm because of their work with GAP.
THANK YOU to Men’s Club Members: Bob, Dennis, Evan, Greg & Tom who on a cold Saturday morning put up the manger scene. As is traditional, the manger scene can be seen on the corner of Hall & Robie in the yard of the Guadalupano residence.
